Following their upbeat first single off 20/20, “Tune You Out”, Chicago pop-punk band Knuckle Puck has released another intense song “RSVP”.
While the album name speaks on the past, the album encourages listeners to live in the present and enjoy the emotions life brings us in the current moment.

“This is one of the first songs I wrote in my apartment after moving to L.A.,” says guitarist/vocalist Nick Casasanto. “So much had happened in my personal life after the release of [2017’s] Shapeshifter that I felt like life was moving and changing faster than I could cope.”
Casasanto further explains, “I felt separated from everything and everyone living on the other side of the country, but it was strangely refreshing. In a way, it felt like I had escaped a lot of my problems. So when people would ask, ‘When are you coming back to Chicago?,’ it was difficult to give them an honest answer.”
“Not every song has to be an existential journey,” Casasanto says. “We went into this album wanting to make people feel good about who they are and not upset about who they aren’t. There’s so much to be angry about right now, and rather than contribute to it, we wanted to give people a reason to feel good. I want people to want to listen to this record.”
